Students will study the process of compilation and preservation of the Qur’ān, and they will analyze the factors that were favorable and unfaroble in the process.


4     Ibadat - Some easy ways to do it      Every religion has different forms, rules, and objectives of religious worship. In Islam, the formal ways of doing ‘ibadat is completing all the rituals, such as salāt and fasting. However, there are many other ‘ibadat, for example, every good deed is an act of worship. This lesson discusses the meaning and significance of ‘ibadah and shows some of the ways we can perform ‘ibadah at every moment in our lives.

 
5     Why human being are superior?      Allāh made human beings superior to all other creations, but do our activities always reflect our superiority? This lesson analyzes some of the key aspects of being “human” and highlights the factors that make us superior and the factors that make us inferior. The lesson also analyzes the implications of being superior. 


6     Is Islam a violent religion?     Some of the Qur’ānic verses related to war, oppression, fighting for justice, and retaliation are misunderstood by many when read out of context. As a result, Islam is viewed as a violent, militant religion. This lesson discusses some of the areas where misunderstandings arise between Muslims and non-Muslims.


7     Peer Pressure     Everybody experiences peer pressure to some extent in their lives. Some peer pressure is good, but much of it is bad, particularly when people yield to the pressure without applying reason and good sense. This lesson discusses how to identify peer pressure and how to make a good decision—during every stage in your life.


8     Choices We make      Allāh has given human beings an important attribute called “choice.” Our ability to “choose” among various alternatives makes us the best of creation. We can choose to be a good Muslim, or choose not to be a good Muslim. The choices we make in our lives influences who we are and determines what will happen to us in this life and in the Afterlife.


9     Dating in Islam     Youths living in the West are increasingly exposed to the common and socially acceptable Western behavior known as dating. As Muslims, are we allowed to date? Can we date our would-be life partner? This lesson discusses dating issues and provides important tools to help students take the correct steps in life.


10     Alcohol and Gambling     Muslim youths growing up in the West are increasingly facing the challenges of social drinking during their high school and college years. Even Muslim adults face similar challenges at many social events. This lesson discusses these important subjects from an Islamic perspective.


11     Permitted and Prohibited Food     The Qur’ān clearly mentions the permitted and prohibited foods. However, with so many dietary choices available in the West, sometimes it is difficult to know which foods are permitted and which are prohibited. At times, permissible meat of an animal can be prohibited based on how and where it was slaughtered. Sometimes prohibition is taken too casually, and at other times, prohibition is stretched too far. This lesson discusses the Qur’ānic injunction on this matter.


12     Food of the People of the Book     The Qur’ān says that food of the People of the Book is permissible for us to eat. How do we interpret this message? Is every food that they prepare permissible, including pork, or are there restrictions? This lesson discusses which of these foods are permissible and those that are not permissible.


13     Khadījah (ra)     Khadījah (ra), the first wife of Rasūlullāh (S), was an extraordinary woman. The purpose of the lesson is to describe the qualities of Khadījah that made her an ideal woman. The lesson will briefly describe the major incidents in her life that ultimately changed the way Islam was propagated.


14     Prophet (S)’s Multiple Marriage     Rasūlullāh (S) married 13 women in his lifetime. The significance of these marriages is sometimes misunderstood by many. These marriages are, at times, discussed in poor taste in Western writing. This lesson discusses why and under what circumstances Rasūlullāh (S) married these women. This information will help students understand the issue from the right perspective.


15     Marriage with Zainab (ra)     Zainab (ra) was the wife of Rasūlullāh’s (S) adopted son Zaid. When Zaid divorced her, Rasūlullāh (S) married her, resulting in quite a bit of misunderstanding in the community. A revelation was sent to approve the marriage of Zainab to Rasūlullāh (S). This lesson discusses the issues relating to the marriage.  


16     The Prophet (S) – A great Army General      The military success of the early Muslims was largely due to the able leadership of Rasūlullāh (S). He always fought from disadvantaged position, yet he was very successful. This lesson discusses some of the military strategies of Rasūlullāh (S) to illustrate that he was also an excellent General of Army.


17     God’s Chosen People     The Children of Israel claim they are God’s chosen people. The Qur’ān states that Allāh favored them at one time. The lesson discusses what it means to be God’s favored nation. We will investigate whether God’s favor continues if the favored nation rebels and rejects God. Are Muslims favored? If so, what should we do to retain this favor?


18     Mūsā’s Personality     Mūsā (A) was a messenger of Allāh, yet, above all, he was a human being. His handling of dramatic events in life reflects his personality. The purpose of the lesson is not to study the events, but analyze how Mūsā (A) reacted as these events unfolded. This analysis will help us understand the of Mūsā’s (A) personality based on the major events in his life.


19     Prophecy of Muhammad in the Bible     The Qur’ān says ‘Isa (A) foretold the advent of Muhammad (S). If we study the Bible, we can find a few references about another messenger who would come after ‘Isa (A). This lesson analyzes the prophecies in the Bible and connects them to the advent of Nabi Muhammad (S).


20     Essentials of Salah     It is important that we understand the essential aspects of salāh.  Each salāh involves some compulsory acts that we must understand and follow. There are rules to follow when we join salāh as latecomers. There are rules to follow when we pray behind an imām. This lesson discusses some of the rules and the essential aspects of salāh.


21     Muslims in North America     The arrival of Muslims in North America appears to be a recent phenomena. However, long ago, Muslims routinely came to the continent. Some reports even suggest they arrived before Columbus discovered America. This lesson analyzes the early history of Muslims in North America.


22     Life cycle of truth - examples from prophets lives      Truth may pass through several stages before people can readily accept its message. The truth passed through a “life cycle” each time past messengers preached their messages. Sometimes it pass through this cycle even today. This lesson discusses the “life cycle” of truth with evidence from the history of the messengers.


23     How Ramadan can bring the best in us     The purpose of the month of Ramadan would be understated if it was only about fasting. The objective of sawm is about much more than abstaining from food during the daytime. The month of Ramadan can bring out the best in us only if we choose to make an effort. If we do not make an effort, we might simply fast and torture our bodies without receiving any benefit. This lesson discusses how this month can bring out the best in us.


24     Indecency     The Qur’ān strongly prohibits us from committing any forms of indecency. However, what is considered indecent is open to a wide range of discussion. This lesson explains why indecency is prohibited and what constitutes indecency.


25     Allegations Against the Prophet (S)     Contemporary people have hurled many allegations against Rasūlullāh (S)—he is crazy, a soothsayer, a liar, a poet, and a forger to name a few. This lesson analyzes the significance behind and the reasons for these allegations. The analysis shows that these allegations were very sinister not only for Rasūlullāh (S) but also for Islam.


26     Family Values     Who we are and what we do is influenced by the type of family values we advocate and promote. In Islam, family values play an important role in shaping our personalities and futures. This lesson discusses some of the family values that we all should espouse and encourage others to follow.


27     Shariah     Sharī‘ah is Islamic law. Sharī‘ah deals not only with the English concept of “law,” but also with the spiritual and moral dimensions of human activity. This lesson discusses the goals and roles of sharī‘ah in Islam. The classification and historical developments of sharī‘ah are also explained.


28     Justice In Islam     One of the most prominent Islamic value systems teaches us to be just with everything and everybody. One need not be a trained judge to practice justice. In this lesson, selected Qur’ānic verses are used to demonstrate why justice is important in Islam and how we can always uphold justice, even if we are dealing with our family and friends.
